June kicks off with a whirl of summery foodie news. Highland Park Village habitués are reveling in the Eurocentric setting of the new 31, perched atop Bistro 31. This cool-Mediterranean scene, designed by Alberto Lombardi, alongside the design firm of Duncan Miller Ullman, has a patio and terrace for convivial conversation, tapas, ceviche and cocktails — while a champagne lounge lures with a menu of caviar and foie gras … Dreaming of a relaxed-chic vibe with seasonal tastings? Bolsa’s newest chef to roam the range is Jeff Harris, who worked with Tom Colichio for six years and has been cooking up a storm since his arrival in Dallas. He’s stirred up a special menu for summer — we recommend the smoked steelhead trout or Evan’s Farm burger, accompanied by a Lady’s Man cocktail or pitcher of Yellow-and-Red Sangría. New brunch and lunch hours coming soon. Ring up a reservation for 614 West Davis Street, or click to bolsadallas.com … Finish the weekend at the Design District’s new eatery, Oak, now serving Sunday brunch from 10 am to 2 pm. Order up the baguette French toast with bruléed banana and Grand Marnier or the sorbet nestled in a bowl of champagne. For details, tap oakdallas.com.
